Mary Jones to McArdle, February 1893

1818 Prairie Aven

Houston Feb. 25./93

Professor McArdle

Dear Sir

            I have written to one

of our Harris Cos. Representatives in behalf of

San Jacinto battle picture[,] And as I have

great doubt whether it will do more

harm than good will inclose [sic] it to

you & ask you to make any chan-

ges you may deem proper or —

consign it to the waste basket, or

fire. I find that I am too nervous to

write, and beside[s] my eyes are not

strong enough to bear the glare of white

Paper — with best wishes for


I am truly your


Mary Jones

Now I beg of you to do with my

letter just as you may think

proper and oblige me
